INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Local hospital system IU Health plans to make a big splash into the urgent care market.
IU Health announced Friday it plans to build 12 urgent care clinics in Central Indiana in the next two years. The planned locations of the clinics weren’t immediately announced.
IU Health officials said they see growth in the field of urgent care, where patients can get help for immediate needs that don’t rise to the level of an emergency room visit. Across the country, many pharmacies have begun offering clinic services, as well.
The clinics will be managed with Premier Health. The first will open in 2015.
